LSU only beat the then #3 team in the country by 13 but it wasn't really that close. LSU did not have trouble with Oregon's offense.
Concerning the road game against WVU, Geno did pass for a ton of yards in a 26 point loss, but LSU essentially controlled that game.
Oregon scored 27 points despite turning the ball over four times. Who knows how many more they score without the mistakes.
The WVU-LSU game was a six point game late in the third quarter...
